    I hear from others that if you take the tour they offer you a great deal on buying gear at the factory. Might be worth going if you are near that area.
    I know I am still using my first gitzo I purchase 24 years ago. Wish others things in life had that cycle.

    When you compare a Gtizo to just about anything else on the market, you can immediately see and feel the difference. There have been imitators, but no one has truly been able to match Gitzo's ease of operation, strength, rigidity, and build quality. I have three Gitzos myself and love 'em!

    It's also comforting to know as a reseller that European small-scale craftsmanship (<90 employees) is still alive and well. The products are extremely well thought out, with no conrners cut. The workers make fair wages in a safe and pleasant work environment. Besides being an excellent product, I can feel good about selling or using on of these.
